A gentleman with a hunger for revenge...
Leo Devlin, Marquess of Hartford, spends his days hiding from the sun as a result of his terrible affliction. At night, he wanders the ballrooms of the town in pursuit of pleasure - in search of anything to numb the memory of the terrifying night he was stripped of his humanity. But despite his relaxed countenance, the flames of vengeance still burn brightly within. With a reputation for recklessness, Leo's friend and mentor, Elliot Markham, is the only man capable of keeping him under control. But when Elliot marries and leaves London for his estate in Yorkshire, Leo's thoughts turn to the woman he blames for the evil curse thrust upon him. Feeling alone and abandoned, Leo knows there is only one way to rid himself of the painful images of the past. But would he be able to find the golden-haired devil responsible for turning him? Would he have the courage to make her pay for all she had done?
